Comments for Pi Day
Pi Day: 03/14/07
Today is pie day. The Berkeley math department was doing a pie for pi day afternoon tea but Ian couldn't attend. We had a bunch of other things that had to be done before tonight's HOA board meeting. Since he couldn't go for pie and since we didn't have time to go out for pie, Sean and I made pie while he was stuck at a three hour board meeting.
To make things easy and quick, Sean and I opted for a custard pie. Sean helped with both the crust and the filling. He got a little carried away with the vanilla but that didn't seem to affect the taste much.
Baking together while Ian was out was like old times. Back in 2004 Ian taught a night course in San Francisco when money was tight from me losing my job at Oracle. As I was stuck with Sean and getting dinner ready at the same time, I ended up teaching Sean how to help me cook.
I did originally as a coping mechanism but Sean ended up loving cooking. He still loves to help in the kitchen. He's mostly into baking. We haven't made many pies together but he's getting so good at following instructions. He was a big help and we had fun.
The pie, by the way, was delicious!
